Appalachian Plants


In Appalachian Plants: In the Garden, In the Yard, and In the Wild, Linda Hager Pack takes readers on a journey through the historical wilds of Appalachia, remembering a time when Appalachians relied on plants for much more than feeding their families. Plants were used for healing and for food but they also sparked social gatherings; they were thought to foretell the future and to provide protection from the weather and evil spirits. Appalachian Plants delights with plant lore, recipes, home remedies, superstitions, and legends about the various plants grown in the yards, gardens, and forests of Appalachia.

Illustrated by Pat Banks, Appalachian Plants includes beautifully rendered watercolor depictions accompanied by each plant's botanical name, common name, and a short description. Both educational and entertaining, Appalachian Plants is a unique, lovingly rendered, and informative visual history that people of all ages will treasure.
